I hope everyone is alright and staying safe! Thank you so much for joining me for online lessons – I know this is a weird time and I appreciate the effort !
– Reminder: Try to set up your iPad a few minutes before class, so we’re not using class time to position the device. Use something to anchor the iPad against the wall so that I can see at least half of your body.
– Recommended practice time: 15-20 min/day, 5 days/week
– Practice: C, G, and D Major scales with long strokes, Song of the Wind, Go Tell Aunt Rhody, Oh Come Little Children, and May Song. For all of these, continue focusing on your bow strokes between the fingerboard and bridge, and to also focus on putting your fingers on the stickers at all times. Also practice the rhythms of these pieces in particular; try saying them out loud before playing.
Thank you and happy playing!
